Large, deep violet flowers with notched petals, adorn this handsome flower which bears hairy, deeply-divided leaves in midsummer. This is one of the parents of the old and sterile, but still favourite, Geranium magnificum which has always been a solid performer with no vices.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
